Pathways through Lent 2013

The St. John’s Pathways through Lent Blog will go live one week from today, on Ash Wednesday: Feb 13, 2013.
Each day, a reflection by a member of St. John’s Church, Lafayette Square in Washington DC will appear.  We walk this Lent as companions, meditating together on scripture and the shared experience of God in our own lives.
If you’re receiving this by email, you are already subscribed to receive the meditations each day.  If you’re reading this online and would like to subscribe to receive the daily reflection by email, you may do so by entering your address on the right hand side of our blog page.
